“The applications on offer for WinterFest 2014 comprise some of my favourite writing software. There’s something here for every step of the writing process, from gathering research and working out connections between ideas, to putting it all together into a manuscript and polishing the text for wherever it needs to go", comments Keith Blount from Literature and Latte.
Tinderbox’s Mark Bernstein finds his colleagues a constant source of inspiration: "You don’t discover inspired design in focus groups. Artisanal software is filled with ideas, ambition, and a passion to make things right. Using all these tools together lets our team build better software while engaging the rest of the research community."
"Our customers love to create something new. And for this, they collect, organize, structure, delete, note, write, and – finally – perfect. With the apps that we have put together for you in this WinterFest, handcrafted by creators for creators, you can do this without the computer getting in the way of your creativity", says Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.
